This is no ordinary fidget toy. Uniquely designed to engage active hands while stimulating right brain activity without disrupting concentration, the OrbitPen represents the cutting edge of stress-reduction technology. This product offers an elegant yet compact aesthetic combined with the soothing capabilities inherent in fidget mechanisms.

The sophisticated design features components that encourage instinctual maneuvering. The pen’s short length enables it to be spun between the thumb and forefinger, while also expanding to create a longer, more functional writing utensil. Complimenting the ability to spin, the OrbitPen also features other fidget implements. Both ends of the pen itself twist: the bottom end rotates smoothly whereas the top turns around a ridged base to provide a varied textural feeling. Furthermore, a metal/marble ball sits on the top end, providing a friction-less surface to roll your finger across or press in and out.

A perfect balance of form and function

Just like fashion, pens are another form of statement: they show the world what matters to you, where your passions lie. With the OrbitPen, we have designed something that you will be proud to own. Whether signing a document or jotting down notes during a meeting, the Orbit Pen always looks good, representing you in the best light possible.

Balancing a minimalistic design with technical proficiency, this pen holds its own as a world-class, fine writing instrument. However, by combining time tested techniques and the latest in fidget technology, the OrbitPen transcends this generic label of “writing utensil”, becoming more of a “thinking tool”. Because of the interactive elements and tactile simplicity inherent within the OrbitPen, it helps to promote creativity and stimulate mental activity.

 Electroplated Stress Relief Metal Sphere

The OrbitPen is all about touch and feel - the spring mounted electroplated stainless steel sphere provides a relaxed, soothing sensation when rolled and pushed down.

 360º Rotatable Numeric "Thinking Tip"

Creative thought is essential. The smooth textural 360° turn tip, similar to that of a radio tuning knob, helps block distracted thoughts and promote outside-the-box thinking.

 Anti-Friction, Anti-Anxiety Spin

The OrbitPen is fitted with a high performance ceramic ball bearing for continuous motion and a smooth glide. Reliable and resilient, stress floats away as you begin to spin.

 Extendable Body for Comfort Writing

The OrbitPen balances fidget and writing capabilities. With the revolutionary extendable body design, it can rest comfortably in your hand to achieve a pleasant writing experience.

Minimal and Sophisticated Design

The pen that you use says lot about you - it needs to have a modern and sophisticated style. With the bold and minimalistic design, the OrbitPen represents confidence, maturity and intelligence.

With a PenStand, It's Always Accessible

The color matched ABS PenStand makes your OrbitPen always available on your desktop when you need it. Combined with the PenStand, the OrbitPen becomes your perfect work companion. 

 A Convenient Desktop Letter Opener

All that is required for you to open your mail is a simple swiping motion, just like with a credit card. Thanks to the design, mail is guided smoothly and cut with precision. 

It's Multi-Stackable; Simply Amazing

Why not have a little fun when you need it? The magnetized spinning mechanism makes the OrbitPen the first multi-stackable fidget pen/spinner in the world.  Stack three or even more ObitPens and watch them spin - visual amusement guaranteed.

Risks and challenges

Though much of the design and prototyping for OrbitPen was straightforward, we did face a major challenge with the amount of calculation required to achieve the perfect balance.

It is beyond necessary for the OrbitPen to maintain its equilibrium indefinitely - numerous prototypes failed to do so. However, in returning to the drawing board several times, the perfect design eventually became realized. With our final version of the OrbitPen, we have engineered the optimal balance, providing users with the most effective and enjoyable experience.

Now that the design and planning are out of the way, the only challenge ahead of us is to purchase the permanent molds for mass production.
